Earlier today, the Barclays Center tweeted out a photo montage (right) of the arena’s hockey setup taking shape. It might be the best photo we’ve seen so far, taken from a side view of the ice surface.
As mentioned on this blog last week, the scoreboard is off-center and looks like it is over one of the bluelines. The photo also sheds a little light on what will happen in the end zone where things get a little tight. It looks as though — unless things change — there will be no seats behind the glass on the lower level on that end (the empty section in the second tier is supposed to be like that, even for basketball games). It also seems like the upper bowl on that side will have an awfully hard time seeing the near net, but I guess we won’t know for sure until September.
